Spring Chandelier

Hi there, today I would like to share my funky - spring chandelier!
I went to Hobby Lobby this morning and picked up this grapevine wreath for $5.99 and some bendable floral wire.
 I cut the wire so I could wrap it around the wreath, and so I could twist and hang it from my dining room chandelier. 
 I wrapped the wire around each light fixture. 
This is how it looked when I was done. Yes, the wire is showing, but once I'm finished sticking the floral picks into the grapevine, you won't even see it, it will blend.
I got four of these at 50% off.
I also got 5 of these at 50% off, too!
I then began to stick the ends of the greenery into the grapevine, and then I fluffed the greenery up to make it look full.
 After I got the first layer done, I started to add the other ones on top.
I kept adding pieces until I got the fullness I desired.
Nice and full.
The chandelier is not exactly my stye, so adding greenery made it more "me".... It's definitely a conversation piece and focal point now.
I hung this spring wreath on my arched gate, which is above my hutch in this room.
It's different, right?
So, there you have it - a different way to spruce up your chandelier for Spring.  I may add some little white/yellow flowers in amongst the greenery. Skies the limit, right?
Thanks for stopping by!
XO, ~Liz

  11. Hello there Lizzie girl. I have missed your blog SO much! I spent some time this morning, reading back all of your posts that I have missed. It is so fun to see how you are decorating your new home. But I have loved every home you have been in, and made your own. I have been busy with my Mom, and away from home, but it was sure fun to catch up with you today. LOVE the wreath! Nailed it girl!!
